The Liberal Party of Newfoundland and Labrador announced today that all individuals who are residents of the district, are 14 years-of-age or older and have registered with the party as a member or supporter by noon on Tuesday, Oct. 22 are eligible to vote in the nomination process.
Two high-profile contenders — Carbonear Mayor Sam Slade and Jamie Korab, an Olympic curling gold medallist and St. John's based real estate agent — have already confirmed their intentions to seek the nomination.
The nomination vote is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 25. Further details will be announced at a later date.
Meanwhile, the Progressive Conservative Party, which is seeking to hang onto the district, has already confirmed its candidate. Jack Harrington, a former aide to former MHA Jerome Kennedy, was unopposed for the nomination.
Kennedy resigned from politics on Oct. 2.
